Vauxhall introduces IntelliGrip electronic traction control


Vauxhall has introduced IntelliGrip, a fully electronic traction control system, in its Grandland X SUV model as a lighter weight alternative to installing a conventional all-wheel-drive system. The system has five selectable independent driving modes: (normal/on-road, snow, mud, sand and ESP off), which can be activated using a central dial in the cockpit. For each setting, the IntelliGrip system adapts engine and transmission control, torque distribution and ESP for optimal contact.

The system adapts torque distribution to the front wheels according to the selected mode, allowing slip when necessary and changing the accelerator pedal control map.
